Good Morning All, Sounds like everyone had a good relaxing Sunday! Bodes well for the week ahead,
My "kids" (mid to late 40's) are all on my mind today; guess you never st0p worrying about them. ALL THREE took bad falls last week! Good news is no bones broken. DD that walks with me went down hard on her hand and knees when we were walking a week ago Sunday. She's a big girl and it was scary, thankful when she got up. We got back to the car and she started RICE as soon as she got home to limit bruising and swelling. Hand was also scraped up. She's worked all week but the bruising was bad. Then Thurs night MD DD went down, again walking. Caught her toe on an uneven sidewalk. She's injured, dislocated elbow, but refuses to go to the doctor because she doesn't have insurance. No amount of talking has helped and she's sure she can manage it herself. DS was over yesterday and shaken because he took a hard fall while stepping over a baby gate while holding his grandson. Pitched his grandson to a safe landing and had him back within seconds but had two gashes in his leg from the baby gate. Baby was fine. Kids! Part of what keeps me busy is it's the best cure I know for worry. Two of the three are fine; the third . . . time will tell. Meanwhile, it's a beautuful day in the 60's, breezy and sunny and I have a lot of yardwork to do; pruning and compost turning. Then in, shower and yoga this evening. Be careful everyone and have a wonderful week

Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation (RICE) -

Came down with a sore throat last night and woke up with it this morning, along with a headache, so decided to use a sick day and stay home and rest today. I hardly ever miss work, but the older I get the more I realize that if I take care of myself and rest at the beginning, illnesses pass more quickly and are less severe. So am just going to take it easy today. Soon as I'm done sparking I'm going to make some of my magical medicinal tea (green tea, ginger, honey & cayenne pepper) and then lay down.

Joy loved your Sugar blog, such a cutie. Sundays are usually unplanned days here too.
Patti hi my love have a good week
Mariyln i adore Celtic music, I bet you enjoyed jigging along.
Cat like you I had a walk yesterday and chilled- it's what Sundays are made for.
Anne you too hun.

Having a workout in a mo and want to get on with "something" today. I lounged around yesterday having felt really weak after my walk (I put it down to sleeping poorly of late).
The trouble is lounging around seams to trigger negativity in me so today I'm keeping on the move. It's unlike me to lounge and I always regret it LOL

Autumn Equinox tomorrow-clocks go back on 26th October in the UK- that always puts my body clock out LOL

Sounds like a fun day for both Marilyn and Joy!!
Today was also unscheduled for me. Had a relaxing day and did little other than a good, long, and very brisk walk and reading.

Hi Everybody!
Cat, I can feel your pain about your pants sewing mishap. I have screwed up some projects
myself. My best advice is to study the pattern instructions over and over and don't skimp on pinning and basting. The times I have tried to take shortcuts were a disaster. I also have gone
to the fabric counter at Joanne Fabric and looked for someone to answer a question. That may
not be possible nowadays, when customer service is limited. Good luck!

Jeri, I really feel for your husband and his friend. Very sad. Sometimes life sucks.

MN, Hope you enjoy the cancer walk. The plus side of a tragic disease like cancer is that it
motivates people to motivate to raise $$ for research.

I started my 5% Fall Challenge yesterday. it was a tough day for Day One, as we had decided
to go to a big neighborhood music festival with limited food choices. I did the best I could with food. And I realized I needed to get more exercise than walking between yards, so I did some
dancing while a Celtic band played.

Wishing everyone a wonderful Sunday!

Good Morning All, Feels like rain this morning, we'll see. Another unscheduled day--that doesn't mean not busy; it just means nothing "on the calendar". I enjoy days like this, don't have to stop in the middle of or not even start something because I'm going to have to "be somewhere". Used my unscheduled day yesterday to give Sugar a good grooming. First time I've used electric clippers on her and she did great. She doesn't look "clipped" but I took a plastic grocery bag of hair off of her! Check out my blog, you'll definitely see she feels better! Xena hated Sugar getting all the attention for 2 hours! Definitely fitness minutes! I can do anything to her but when it comes to grooming SHE WILL NOT HELP! I have to lift her, turn her, lay her down, etc. She's only 45# but feels like more than that because it's dead weight!
Was a beautiful day and enjoyed being in the yard. We worked on the patio, so much nicer than in the house. All is well.
Enjoy your Sunday. Smiles.

Sound like all of you were enjoying your Saturday! Me too.
Well it's a beautiful morning, I looking forward to my beach walk this morning and touching base the locals; I'm on nodding terms and brief conversational time will many other walkers and dog walkers. Just a smile and a nod or a "how are you doing" makes for a pleasant start to the day. Got some cleaning done and DH has promised to help with the rest, love him.
If it stays fine enough I'll get in the garden, would like to get the lawns cut but I have a feeling they'll be too wet today.

MN, sounds like a great day for you and your community. Have fun.
CAZ, even though we had a mild winter and a great/warm summer, I have seen signs of a hard winter to come. Lots of pine cones on all our evergreens for one.
One pocket in and the other has to be redone again. I am thinking this will be a practice run and after I figure it all out I will make a pair out of nice material.
Thanks for all the support.

Bringing back memories of my high school Home Ec sewing classes. That seam ripper tool was my friend!! Ready to go to the cancer walk. I'm on a team in memory of my close friend's daughter who died at age 22 of ovarian cancer. Hoping to get lots of miles in on the walking path and also have fun at the different fund-raising activities that the various teams do at their booths. It's always a bittersweet time. The funds raised all stay in our local county to help cancer patients and their families with expenses that aren't covered by insurance -- especially travel to/from medical appointments. Each year a research center is chosen to receive a percentage of the funds. While supper is served, my swing band will be entertaining. Looks like a beautiful day for the event! Have a good one, teammates!

Patti good for you hun
Jeri Salmond was too vague on many of the issues; no wonder the Scots had their doubts. We are in for one heck of a ride if we're spilt into regions. Won't do the stock market any favours *sighs*. I am sorry for your hubby, so sad.
Joy if our last winter is anything to go by it won't be too cold. Plus we're acclimatised now, not soft Londoners LOL
MN sounds like you have a full weekend ahead.
Cat how frustrating. You'll get it fixed though I have no doubt.

Workout and some indoor chores today- really want to get the carpets cleaned, been on my list too long!!

CAT, Letting it sit and coming back to it is a good idea. You reminded me of when I was in college; went home with my roommate for the weekend and was sewing a skirt. We were drinking wine and sewing. ... ... ... Put the zipper in 7 times! Still couldn't get it right! Duh! Left it until the next day and amazingly had no trouble at all. emoticon
Nope, don't need to be young again. I'm just fine right here thank you! :)

Hi all. Trying to make some slacks, taking it slow and one step at a time. Thought all was going well until I sewed the pockets to the outside of the pants!!! Good grief. Tried to redo them and screwed up again. Now I am letting it sit while I calm down.....................
A great, new machine does not a seamstress make.
Got in a bit of a walk today but had some stomach troubles and had to rush home. Stayed close the rest of the day. Erk.
Have a good evening.

Good Morning All, Beautiful weather today and for the weekend. Planning to spend a lot of time outside. Love fall, but spring is still my favorite; mostly look forward to winter leaving more than coming and in the spring the bugs haven't emerged yet! Still, enjoying the break from the heat!
CAZ, I think all were watching Scotland. Not a simple issue, or decision. In today's world, seems the best one to me. Stronger together than alone so to speak.
Need to get into this day. Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Good morning.
Caz, I've been really interested in the Scottish vote. They are a proud people, and I suspect more of them wanted yes, but were afraid of the uncertainty that would come with a yes vote. In the end, they did what was practical. The financial markets were certainly happy with the vote. :-) I have a dear friend in Barcelona who is Catalan. Spain is an entirely different setup, and they will never get the chance to vote like that. So many different factions in Spain, it would practically eliminate the country if they all voted for independence.The whole world was watching Scotland. I was so glad it could be settled with a vote and not a war. I wish more countries would settle things that way.

It's another beautiful day in Kentucky. My husband is visiting his friend today. His friend is in the hospital and probably will not live. They have been best friends for over 20 years. This is really hard on my husband.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Lynette love new trousers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Slim fittling ones are proof of living healthily and keeping toned- a NSV! LOL
Patti it's Friday hun, hang in there
Marilyn glad you're on the mend and you enjoyed the cruise.
Joy we're having all weathers in 24 hours; rain over night, morning sea mist followed by brilliant sun all day. Perfect for getting out during the day and doing the garden good over night LOL

Scotland is still with the Union, they unanimously voted NO! SOOOoooo pleased. Trouble is we'll now be devolving more powers to them and excluding Scottish MPs from voting on ENGLISH matters. It had to happen. The whole UK will have a different complexion before long as it's said similar powers will go to Wales.
At least the trading floor has shown it's approval and shares are rising, we were losing a lot of money, so can breathe easier now there is more certainty.

Was a beautiful day here once the fog burned off. Kept busy running the dog to her grooming appointment and trying to get back to work on time (didn't quite make it!), then back to get her after work. Barely had time t eat a quick supper before rushing off to play pickleball. Had a good workout tonight and it tired me out! Think it will be early to bed tonight....

Mother Nature is making up for the nonsense of last week. I'm loving it and hoping for a crunchy walk to inhale the fragrances of fall. Lots on the agenda for today so gotta fly!

Good Morning All, Yes, a beautiful morning here in KY; nice breeze! Headed out for a walk and yardwork after I'm done here. So nice to be back in my regular routine. Downtown for Thursday Night Live this evening. Have to plan ahead for pizza and beer. ;)

Lynette, isn't it great to have new slim pants that fit well?! Good riddance to the old.
Patti, I understand your frustration; just give it your best. This week is almost behind us.
All is well here. Be well everyone!

Just stopping by to say hi! I had a great time on the riverboat cruise in Washington but came home fighting a cold and with a raging case of jetlag so last week kind of went by in a blur. The good news is I won the battle against the cold (maybe it was just allergies?) and I am beginning to feel back to normal.

I've been at DD's home (about 45 minutes away from my home) house/pet sitting while she and her family are having a beach vacation in Florida. Its interesting how much more time 3 pets (one dog, one 16 yo cat and one two yo cat) take than one dog! Especially the old girl - she firmly believes I am here just for her LOL. I guess she figures I owe her that since she helped me tend Brandy and the boys when they were born (Caleb is 14 and Josh is 11.)

Today I'm driving out to my old company (I retired 7 years ago) for a girls' lunch. Its about an hour and a half away (THROUGH Atlanta) so I don't go all that often but I'm looking forward to it. This time it will be ALL the women of AMI, not just the accounting dept. (who I usually lunch with when I visit.

I made it through about half a page of catching up but I'll have to finish at a later date and try to see what everyone is up to. But I did see that your DS got a new job, Joy - awesome!! And that the remodeling is almost done?? I'll finish later to see if it ALL got done? Make it a GREAT day!!

Good morning. It's a beautiful day in Kentucky. I'm meeting my husband at the soccer field tonight for a five mile run/walk (he's not a runner).

They're voting in Scotland today. I'm anxious to see how that turns out.

Hi Everybody!
Slenderella, Hope you feel better soon.

Jewels, welcome to our team! Sorry to hear about your pain. One of the things we do here informally is discuss pain from injuries, old age, etc., and talk about therapies we have tried
and commiserate with each other. I think many of us have realized that it is impossible to live
completely pain free after a certain age. But that doesn't mean we can't enjoy life.

Anybody else watching the PBS documentary on the Roosevelts? it is amazing the physical and personal pain they endured while still making incredible contributions to our country. I am sure that could be said about a lot of great political leaders in the world.

I did my volunteer work this morning, and enjoyed it as usual. it's worth getting up early one day a week to do something to help others.

I am realizing I am missing lots of bits of knowledge about computers and photo management.
I may invest in a reasonably priced online course that I found. I have done some things wrong over time. I have about 1500 photos on my PC. Even though they are supposed to be in folders, they show up in seemingly random order so one year's holiday photos are interspersed with photos from 3 or 4 different occasions. And some of the photos were downloaded up to 6 times. So it is a mess! I will let you know if I decide to take the course.

Have a great Wed.!

Get yourself better, Slenderella! Went to a program last night and realized this morning that I had left my jacket there. Second time I've done that in a week! One of the hazards of a change in weather -- not yet used to having a jacket with me!

Good Morning All, Chilly this morning; will be a good morning for a long walk! Have enjoyed two days now of getting back to my routine, yoga, and time for friends. :)
Plan on working in the yard today; like yesterday, weeding and pruning. Life is good.
Be well.

walked over to the next neighborhood last night and walked in the downtown area today as I had a focus group to attend. Enjoy getting my steps in with a "walk and gawk".
Went to bed a bit earlier last night and will do the same tonight as I try to develop better sleep routines. Ran into a neighbor I hadn't seen in awhile and she was very complimentary, asking how I am looking younger! emoticon

Hi all.
Yesterday just got away from me with shopping and walking and whatever else I was doing.
Today has been more relaxing and just doing odd jobs here and there. Clear coated a pantry cabinet top, shortened a SP T shirt sleeves, mended some shorts, general piddling around.
Got in a good walk mid morning as it was cool enough and warm enough, not too much of either.
Stay strong!

Haven't been on much lately. The stress level in my life skyrocketed in the past week--only got 5 hours of sleep last night. At least I'm not stress eating, which is a real accomplishment for me!

The weather was finally cool enough to get out to into the yard on Saturday. We filled 4 big lawn bags with pulled-up grass and tree seedlings. Well, bigger than seedlings, actually--one of the trees was blooming. Still a lot to do, but a great improvement. Who'd have guessed there were so many weeds in a 17x15 yard!

Hi Everybody!
Cool and cloudy this morning. Thank goodness I can work out inside if I choose. I am gearing
up for the 5% Fall Challenge that starts Saturday. It will definitely take my accountability up several notches. I spent a lot of time wrestling with my IPad trying to upload a "before" picture
to my Spark page. It turns out I uploaded it 5 times because there was no message that it had
completed uploading. I definitely want to learn more about the Cloud and storing photos and all that.

Happy Tuesday!
Marilyn

Weather warmed up some today so it's not as damp and chilly in the house tonight. I am looking forward to this weekend when we have our annual Walk of Hope (cancer fundraiser) - one of the teams always sells HoneyCrisp apples and I'm going to splurge and get some. They are the absolute best as far as an "eating apple" (as opposed to pie apple or applesauce apple, etc.) The weather sounds good for the weekend so I'll get lots of walking in at the event. I need to make my luminaries, and I am SO unartistic!

Hi Everybody!
It has been very chilly here. I hate to run the furnace in Sept. Well, at least it is sunny today. I am excited because the Browns won their first home game of the season. I have to admit I had written them off, but they may win a few games this season. I love the excitement of football,but it is much better when my team is winning. Go Browns!

Fall is just around the corner, so the Miata will be stored away one of these days. I drove out in the country to check out a new storage facility. It is near a local orchard, so I stopped for a few apples. All the varieties are not ripe yet, but I got some juicy, red apples to take home.

Have a great Monday!

Marilyn

Good Morning All, Chilly morning here, going to be a beautiful day. Will spend some time in the yard; yoga tonight. Had a busy day yesterday and got a lot done. Accounts balanced and bills paid and got the kitchen straightened up. Fun morining walk with DD; 4.5 miles of trail. Took Sugar and DD's new puppy and they did great both in the car and on the walk. Both dogs loved it. I'm hoping that will encourage her to make more time.

Lynette, I know exactly what you mean; I love when we have those "girls" weekends. Often it's Thanksgiving weekend for us as one daughter lives in MD.

Marsha, hope you are well soon.

Make it a great week everyone!

Marilyn glad your FIL is improving, good to hear.
Busy week ahead, will post some garden pic on my blog today or tomorrow, Pete has a check up on Thursday and I really want to get the carpets steamed before the cold weather sets in and I can't leave windows open to help them dry.

Have a good one!

Nice time with my girls this wkend: we got some work done, some visiting, some shopping, love it when they come "home".
Weather has turned around and I went for a walk around the neighborhood tonight to check out storm damage. Loads of broken branches for city workers to deal with. People who had cut in their own yards (or trimmed boulevard trees themselves as many aren't waiting for the authorities to get to it) made piles curb-side which will be picked up and mulched.

Hi gals and happy Sunday to all.
I got in some gardening and greenhouse organization today and fertilized most plants for the fall. Used epsom salt for the first time. I never realized it could be used for anything except foot baths!

Hi Everybody!
We are visiting my FIL in the hospital today. He is doing much better. Maybe he will get to go
home later this week. It is a long day of sitting--2 hr. ride down, then sitting in the hospital room 5 or 6 hrs. and 2 hrs. in the car going home. At least I have walked around the hall a few times.
Have a great Sunday!

It's Sunday, a day for a little bit of exercise and a little bit of relaxing. Heading back to the cabin for the afternoon. A friend of hubby's gave us a salmon steak from a fishing trip to Michigan. We're planning on grilling it for supper, along with a frilled veggie medley.

Good Morning All, Productive day yesterday! Chilly morning, in the 40's but warming; beautiful sunrise. DD will be coming over soon and we're headed out for a trail walk. She's bringing her puppy, should be an interesting walk! Sugar will be a good influence, she's a good walker. Definitely jacket weather, should be in the 50's by the time we head out. Need to get moving. Have a wonderful day.

Morning Guys
Slept better last night, reckon it must be the change in the season.
Off for a beach walk, workout and some light gardening. Will post some September Garden pics soon! Some interesting flowers are blooming, again I am stumped by some so could use your help, please.

Have a great Sunday

Oh boy, another productive day. Got the pantry cleared out and cleaned up for the contractor to put up my shelves, hopefully, next week.
SO went to a car show and I stayed home to get this done.
He found an estate sale up the road and told me about it. I wasn't going to go but did.
SCORE! A sewing table with five drawers and an L shape. Very flexible and hardly used.
Couple in their late 80's went to a retirement home and daughters selling all. They had a $1200 Kenmore sewing machine to rival my Viking for $200 including the table (which I got). I should have bought the machine for a backup.............
No window cleaning or planting done as I had planned, but a good day overall.

Feeling energetic today, so may cut my sparking short and get outside for a walk! Sometimes that energy fades too quickly if I don't take advantage when the feeling first hits!

Good Morning All, Up early; nothing went as planned yesterday! Hair is still not colored. Kitchen changes are done and tools put away but cleaning, clearing and organizing are still on the list for the weekend. Walking Sugar and coloring my hair are priorities after sparking this morning. Yesterday morning was spent doing laundry, fretting and doing the prep work for fixing the bad areas of wallpaper. Xena's UTI seems to be acting up again with my bed her favorite unacceptable place to pee. Mostly she's still trying to use the litterbox but she's running on empty because she's having frequent "urges". No scolding, poor girl doesn't seem to know what's going on. Bed is staying covered with plastic. Have not found any other places and I'm letting her spend all the time outside she wants. She's become very reliable in the yard. Spent over an hour at the vets in the afternoon. $$$ Thorough exam, xrays for bladder or kidney stones, no solutions. Sent home to wait and see and give the antibiotics more time to do their work. Could be a cystitis (inflammation); not sure, but if it is antibiotics won't help. Urgh! Other possiblities involve really invasive testing; since she's not in any pain, not sure how far we will go. It's like having a sick kid and feeling helpless.
So, at 5 p.m. was repairing the wallpaper that was scheduled to be done in the a.m. Turned out well and the kitchen is done; except for clean up. Blog later today. Walked Sugar, got my yoga and hooping in and finished the day tired. But today has started out well, Xena slept hard last night so maybe she's turned a corner.

CAT, What are you planting in your fall garden?
MN, It's cooler here too, but pleasant; 50's in the evenings and 70's during the day.
Lynette, The countertop and new projects will have to wait until after the holiday's. I did paint the downstairs bathroom floor over 20 years ago and it's held up fine. The paint kit I used at the time was closing out; but I've noticed it's back as a garage floor finish. Could probably google garage floor paint and find it. It was a 3 step process, base coat, sprinkled with colored chips, sweep up the chips that don't stick and finish with several coats of acrylic. Rest assured, if I build up the courage; I will blog it!
J'sGMA, Keep moving and let us know your favorite exercises. Make it fun!
Patti, I hope your friend is doing better.
Be well everyone and have a wonderful weekend!

Joy yo ARE an inspiration hun, MN is right, you're always on the go. One amazing lady ((hugs)))
Lynette hope you enjoyed your time out yesterday, being with friends for a laugh and catch up is great,
MN yes the weather is turning, although that said it was hot yesterday but bitterly cold last night. Thicker duvet soon........very soon. I've been encasing myself in the present one and nicking more of it during the night from Pete's side (unintentionally) and he's not best pleased LOL
Cat sounds like you had a very productive day, I'll be getting out garden ready for autumn/winter soon and getting some "feed and weed" on the lawns. Think I'll ask our gardener friend to scarify again for us!

It's the weekend! ya! although it makes no real difference to retirees LOL
Walk planned for after brekkie and a workout, maybe some gardening (see what needs doing) or some final sunbathing while the weather allows and stock up on VIT D emoticon

What a wonderful way to spend a day, CAZ.
After talking about breaking pots, etc and using them in the garden I broke one of the dogs bowls this morning! Out to the broken ceramic pot it went until room is found for it in a spot.
Did some yard/garden work this morning as I had planned. I didn't get anything planted but tore out some stuff and cut back some other stuff and moved some dirt around. I'll get to the planting soon as all is in a bucket of water staying 'fresh'.
Got in a decent walk after that and lunch. It's such a beautiful day here again.

It would be a beautiful day if this was October, but too chilly for September! I had to pull a sweater out from the back of my closet this morning! The plan was to spend the weekend at the cabin, but sounds like it's going to be cold and windy, which is not all that pleasant at the lake. Maybe I'll stay home and catch up a bit on cleaning.
